Thanks to a friend, I recently was directed to a great blog on writing called A Place for Writers. Julie Jordon, the blog owner, has a wealth of information on different writing tips and practices including a stellar blog on questions to address when Outlining the Plot of a novel and a simple but powerful blog on Encouragement to fellow writers. She even has a current writing contest running until June 30th. There is a total of 4 categories and each are quick, easy and fun. In fact, you can easily do one of the challenges for a writing exercise, which I already have (I chose contest #3 alternate point of view, the POV of a stethoscope… What fun!). Check it out. Even if you opt not to enter the contest, the information might be inspirational for getting the writing bug going strong.
